Question about Dell Inspiron 1525 Notebook

1 Answer

Hi, My laptop doesn't boot up. I got a blue screen with the following error message- STOP: c000021a {Fatal System Error} The initial session process or system process terminated unexpectedly with a status of 0x00000000(0xc0000102 0x0010037c) The system has been shut down. I got the above message on a blue screen twice. I don't get this anymore when I try to boot up. Now I get a diagnostic message suggesting 'Laptop Repair Recommended'. If I choose that I get the microsoft coop logo at the bottom with a scan sign (like you see when your laptop boots up normally) and then there's nothing else on the screen. Please help! Thanks

Thats known as a blue screen of death. you simply have to put in an operating system CD which is bootable (the one which you are currently using win xp vista or whatever) just boot through the cd ignore the first repair option and hit enter when the option for repairs appears for the second time just hit R and follow the options. you won't loose any data.

SOURCE: on startup cpu goes to a blue screen that says

Hello,

turn on the system in safe mode by turn on the system and pressing F8 constantly on the keyboard. A booting option will come up, scroll to safe mode and press enter.

Wait a while for the system to run/boot in safe mode. After the system has been booted in safe mode, wait a while and restart the computer and the blue screen should vanish.

If it doesn't vanish, run the system in safe mode again and preform system restore by going to Start > All programs > Accessories > System tools > system restore.

Allow the system to restore and the computer will be restarted.


But if the system refuses to boot in safe mode, you will have to run windows operating system (XP/Vista) on your laptop, this is the only way to solve the problem since the system is not booting.

If you don't have OS CD, then you might have to purchase on or borrow from a friend because that's the only fix to this problem.

You don't need to perform full system installation, you can just repair windows with the CD. When you get the CD, insert it into the CD drive and the system will boot from the CD.

Good luck.

SOURCE: i get blue screen that says c000021a fatal system

If you get a blue screen that typically means something is wrong

Try this - Right click My computer under start menu-Properties-Hardware Tab-Device Manager and make sure there are no yellow question marks. Also make sure all drivers are updated.

It might also be software related, so check your software

If you still can't figure it out, take it to a computer specialist or repair shop and they will help you out to their ability.

If you are up for it, you can re-install Windows, but make sure all your data is backed-up before you begin

SOURCE: i tried to start my acer aspire 3100 laptop and it

Sounds like Windows XP? If you have installed any new hardware lately remove it and try again. If you have installed any software or drivers recently boot into safemode by pressing F8 at startup and choose system restoreand set it back to a date when it work. If the laptop wont let you do any of the above boot from the Windows CD and choose repair install. This wont wipe any of your documents or programs but you will have to download all MS updates again.....good luck from Scott

The error message says fatal system error.


Hi. The STOP 0xC000021A error occurs when either Winlogon.exe or Csrss.exe fails. When the Windows NT kernel detects that either of these processes has stopped, it stops the system and raises the STOP 0xC000021A error. This error may have several causes. Among them are the following:
  • Mismatched system files have been installed.
  • A Service Pack installation has failed.
  • A backup program that is used to restore a hard disk did not correctly restore files that may have been in use.
  • An incompatible third-party program has been installed.
Booting the computer to its Last known good configuration will resolved the issue. Please see procedure below:

Turn of the computer
Keep on tapping F8 key the moment you press the power button
You should be getting a advanced boot screen
Select Last known good configuration from the selections then hit enter
Computer should be booting up by now to windows

All the best!

Computer Blue Screen of Death


burn this disk as an .iso and boot from disk. try the recovery options on this disk first, and if nothing then you may be in need of a free OS install. you MUST keep all virus, spyware, and firewall up to date n order to keep your computer safe. free-avg.com does have a great free download.

Blue screen of death.


Try re-seating the RAM (memory sticks) with the system turned off. Clean out any dust from inside the PC, especially on the CPU fan.

Blue screen c000021a fatal system error


usually blue screen comes from unstable video memory or windows system or HD.
you may try
1) reinstall windows
2) change another HD to install windows
3) change new ram memory or change memories slot between one and another
if not fixed, to be sure your video memory damage which is insualted on board(separated with RAM), only the hardware repair can be fixed.

Bootup problem


Your CPU is overheating.

Try and get into the BIOS and increase the fan speed & any aother fan on the system. Don't increase the temperature range, as this will damage the system.

You won't be able to sort out the software problem until the system is running within the hardware limits.

You can also run a office fan to help get the system to cool while making the changes in the BIOS.

Most places will tell you you're boned, but there is the option of using a live cd, such as Knoppix. The following website has a little bit of background on the problem, and how he fixed it.
